There’s no denying that the impression
of your company is often initially
made in only a few seconds.

And during that time, nothing has a greater impact than the appearance of your
brand image and marketing materials.

You may have the best product or service in the world, but unless you can present that in a cohesive, consistent and compelling manner, you may never get the chance to prove it. We understand the power and importance of creating and maintaining an intriguing and consistent brand identity. From strategy development to execution, we’ll work with you to realize your ideas and visioning – or conceptualize new ones that’ll not only level the marketing playing field for you, but probably tip it in your favor.

If you’re looking for an integrated marketing agency who can design, deliver and deploy a top-notch marketing message within your budget and time-frame – then you’ve come to the right place!

DESIGN is where NEED and ART meet.
GREAT DESIGN fulfills the NEED — but you only see the ART.

  • Dan Paterno created and designed the cover of my mystery novel, “Murder in Winnetka.” The book went into a second printing currently selling over 10,000 copies. I am certain the cover is responsible for people picking it up off the shelf! His creative energy is psychic – he just knows what is right and will work. He knew exactly how I wanted the book to look and made it happen overnight. What a talent to have as my partner!

  • This has been my organization’s second time working with the Paterno Group. And, as I expected, I was very impressed with the quality of work done for my newly re-designed website. They are always willing to make the process easy and effortless. It’s great working with an organization that’s so responsive to the customer’s needs and vision. Moreover, they deliver results in a timely manner. I will certainly continue to conduct business with the Paterno Group.

  • I really enjoy working with Dan Paterno! He has fabulous ideas and his work is professional beautiful. EVERYONE who commented on the artwork from last year’s Gala raved about how it was the best design ever. Dan…thank you for all of your amazing and professional work and for your patience working with me on each project!

  • We have worked with the Paterno Group for more than ten years, and we could not be happier with the partnership. As our institution grew, they worked side-by-side with us and helped shape our image and reflect our mission in practically all of our printed materials, with ideas and designs we never could have imagined ourselves. And yet, wherever we felt strongly that an image or message had to be present in our materials, Dan (or the design team) never hesitated to “go with it”, incorporate our ideas (or even improve them), and deliver a great product.

Additionally the level of professionalism and communication was excellent! Bravo to Paterno Group for their work and we highly recommend them for any one of your projects! You will be beyond pleased!

Whether they’re developing your website, electronic or print material, or capturing your corporate pictures for publication, every service is handled with the utmost care to the customer’s satisfaction.

  • Since 2008, The Paterno Group has offered assistance in creating necessary graphic design and video production pieces for Chicago House Special Events. Their creative vision and ability to translate concepts into reality took our fundraising events to a new level.

  • The team at The Paterno Group exceeded any and all expectations I had when we started the process of developing branding and designing a new, innovative web site for my consulting firm. Dan Paterno, particularly, has a gift at pulling out and interpreting the ideas I had in my head, then making them better.  I can’t recommend The Paterno Group strongly enough to any firm – small or large – looking for exceptional value and reasonably priced design services.
